Too Cool T-Rex

  • Created an extra cool climber for a kid’s museum
  • Designed the skull based on a real T-rex skeleton
  • Constructed the climber using material resistant to California weather


The director of the Kern County Museum in Bakersfield called asking to order a piece for their new addition. The museum focuses on the history of their community, but they also have a Children’s Discovery Center and wanted something extra special for the little ones to enjoy.  


We built a DinoBonz T-Rex Skull Climber that spans 5’ long and stands more than 3’ tall. Modeled from a real dinosaur skull, we crafted this replica from glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC), a material so strong and versatile that is also known as smart-crete. It’s environmentally friendly and resistant to fire and the California weather. Since the replica is filled in, the climber is a safe structure where kids can play and imagine.


The T-Rex Skull Climber adds distinctive touch to the Children’s Discovery Center. The new dino themed climber will be a fun focal point that kids can enjoy all day long.
